A poem about cars in the eyes of people back in yesteryear

Cars from 100 years ago, oh how they used to glow, With brass and polished wood, so sleek and fine, They rolled down roads with grace, a symbol of the place, Where technology and style did elegantly combine.

Their engines purred with power, fueled by gasoline, And people flocked to see, this marvel of man’s mind, From city to the countryside, these cars could take you for a ride, And transport you to places, you’ve never been before you’d find.

The open road was calling, and drivers couldn’t resist, With the wind in their hair, they felt truly blessed, To be behind the wheel, of these magnificent machines, Which paved the way for the future, of what automobiles could be.

So here’s to cars from 100 years ago, A timeless masterpiece, of an era we’ll never know, Their elegance and charm, will forever live on, And remind us of a time when cars were more than just a con.
